I once got a guy for counterfeiting. He was counterfeiting $1.00 bills. I HAD to book Him under the counterfeiting statute because "Stupidity" isn't
against the law, if it were, this cop would be guilty of same...
But "Thank You" for the compliment and I do miss the J O B every day..
I worked the Hood and only had to fight Once, a Samoan male who hadn't slept in 2 days on methamphetamine. He apologized at the hospital and wrote Me
a letter from Prison. He told Me He didn't like the female officer shaking the O.C. (oleoresin capsicum) and twirling Her baton while approaching Him.
Worked for Me so I booked Him on the warrants and She had to do the assault (I agreed with Him) It was a pit bull at a meth lab that broke My
For My troubles, I now get $1207/month deducted from My retirement for "Affordable Healthcare"
